Cookies
1

1
cup butter, softened
1
egg
2
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1
teaspoon cardamom
1
teaspoon cinnamon
1/4
cup sugar
Filling
2
tablespoons butter
1 1/4
cups powdered sugar

teaspoon vanilla
4
to 5 teaspoons milk
  1. In large bowl, combine brown sugar and 1 cup butter; beat until light and fluffy. Add egg; blend well. Add flour, cardamom and cinnamon; mix well. If necessary, cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 hour for easier handling.
  2. Heat oven to 350°F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. For each cookie, dip bottom of glass that has textured base in sugar; flatten dough ball to form 1 1/2-inch round.
  3. Bake at 350°F. for 6 to 10 minutes or until firm to the touch. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Cool 15 minutes or until completely cooled.
  4. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in medium saucepan over medium heat; cook until light golden brown. Remove from heat. Stir in all remaining filling ingredients, adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. For each sandwich cookie, spread about 1 teaspoon filling between 2 cooled cookies.

Make-Ahead Tip
Bake the cookies, but do not fill them. Seal them in an airtight container and freeze them for up to four months. Filled sandwich cookies may be frozen for up to two months; layer them between waxed paper in an airtight container.
Make It Special
It's easy to create an assortment of pretty cookies. Purchase a variety of decorative cookie stamps at a cookware store. Or flatten the dough balls with interesting kitchen finds; try a fork, a meat mallet, crinkle vegetable cutter or the bottom of a fancy cut-glass cup.
